Ray Robinson's departure from Wayne State
Please join me in congratulating Ray Robinson on his recent acceptance of a position with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he will serve as a Manager in the Music and Cultural Arts area. His responsibilities include developing and producing a variety of training materials and curriculum, film, music, and theatrical productions, and building and developing project teams. The position connects well to both his work in the arts and his doctoral work in leadership and higher education.
Because Ray will be moving with his family to Utah on June 1, he may not have an opportunity to say goodbye to everyone with whom he has worked. He has asked me to share his gratitude to members of the college and notes: “These three years as the Interim Chair of the Maggie Allesee Department of Dance have been a wonderful experience to work with students, faculty and administrators. I have high hopes for the future of the college and appreciate the opportunity to have worked here.”
I am sure you join me in congratulating Ray on this next step in his professional life, but also for the fine work he has done leading the dance department over this past three years. By all measurable outcomes: student achievement, faculty morale and many improved and collaborative decision making processes, he has demonstrated extraordinary flexibility and skillful leadership. We will miss him terribly!
Sharon L. Vasquez, Dean
